Thank you for taking the time to visit my website, see my work and learn a bit about me as a photographer. Landscape, nature and adventure photography is what started my passion for photography, which I still partake in whenever I can today. Having lived in various parts of the Canadian Rockies for nearly 15 years, I wore a number of hats including working as an ACMG hiking guide before starting my wedding and portrait photography business. Now based in Golden, BC, I have thoroughly enjoyed exploring a new backyard in the mountains both recreationally and professionally. I shot my first wedding for my business in 2012 with a very adventurous couple who wanted their wedding off the beaten path. I knew right away that I wanted to do more weddings of their nature (pun intended). I love to work with couples who share a deep appreciation for the outdoors, possibly have an adventurous flair for life either with outdoor pursuits or travel, and are seeking a less conventional, more authentic and creative approach to how they want their wedding documented. I believe that every wedding is unique, and offers a great opportunity to showcase a couples love from all levels on a wedding day. There is no greater achievement than catching those beautiful little moments that speak volumes of who they are as a couple and how they share love with their families and friends. That is what pushes me as a keen observer and keeps me excited for each and every wedding I am fortunate to photograph.
As a personal side, my favourite way to spend a day is in the great outdoors. I love skiing (resort and backcountry), rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking and backpacking. I am also an avid traveler who tries to explore a new part of the world every year. My side kick in life is a sweet little husky named, Neve. She joins me for most adventures and is the usual topic of discussion amongst my dog loving couples. She's pretty adorable.
What I am most excited for, with the coming year (2018), is the opportunity to do more travel with my work. I have a wedding booked in Ireland for August of next year and another working portraiture opportunity in Norway for October. I personally intend on visiting Europe again this spring (destination TBA). If there is one thing I love just as much as photography, it is travel. Please do not hesitate to reach out with an inquiry in another part of the world, or even Canada for that matter. I am very likely to enthusiastically say YES! if I am able to join you. :)
Again, I thank you for taking the time to see my work, and read a bit about me. I would love to connect and see where it takes us. Until then, warmest wishes and most sincere gratitude for your time.
